So, I am moving to the Oxford area.  I would first and foremost love to meet some craftsters because I will have no friends and I am a sad and lonely person without friends.  Second of all - tell me where to live!!!  I will be working 6 miles outside of the city limits and I need some place good and cheap that will let me have a dog.  Preferably not an apartment.

Hi!  I'm in Tupelo.  I went to the University of MS...I'm sorry I don't know of many places to live that are outside of Oxford that would be either cheap or not apartments, but I'll bet you have found a place by now!

I am in Tupelo this week!  I actually really like it here, I live in Oxford though, I travel here for work and just stay over so that I don't have to drive back and forth.  What is your fav place to eat?  any good shops besides Hobby Lobby and Hancock fabrics?

Do you know of any knit groups or other craft groups, as I would be willing to drive over here to meet some fun people?!?

thanks!

Yes the area is not too bad.  I grew up here though.  My favorite place to eat would have to be Vanelli's!  It's Italian and Greek.  I also like Fusion 205 it's near crosstown and it's got a little bit of everything including really really good desserts!  Sadly Tupelo isn't too good in the crafty area with shops.  Besides Hobby Lobby and Hancock's the closest yarn shop is in Columbus that I know of.  There used to be one in Oxford but it closed. 
There's not a knit group in Tupelo...yet but hopefully we can get one started on the other thread!  Even if it's a small one to start out!  Are you on Ravelry?

I am on Ravelry, I haven't posted, I am not too familiar with their boards yet but my username is the same.  I don't know where Columbus is (HAHA! I don't know where anything is except for the 32 creeks I have been sampling!)  I have had Vanelli's, it is up the street from the hotel that I have been staying in.  I am up for meeting.  I will be out of town this weekend, but let me know if you want to get together.

Oh okay.  I'm a member over there too.  I've sort of become more active over there actually.  My name over there is icehotels. Columbus is about an hour south of Tupelo...if you go down hwy 45.  I actually have to work my second job this weekend but I am off Monday from both jobs but meeting up would be cool.

I also live in Oxford, but work in Oxford as well.  It would be nice to meet up with new people that are into crafty stuff.  I don't sew b/c I'm really uncoordinated, but I like making home-made gifts (picture frames, paintings, coasters, decorating items, etc.).  I do have a good friend who quilts like a mad woman.  It'd be nice to meet people with somewhat similar interests. 

Oh, I'm Jessica, 24, by the way. 

Where did you find a place to live in Oxford?  My fiance and I are looking for houses to rent in the near future.  Our current apartment is too small.
